Limited Editions are the best ways to #CelebrateSuccess . Taking these words seriously, Mercedes Benz India launched the A-Class #Edition1 & the B-Class #Edition1 on June 25, 2014.
Mercedes A-Class & B-Class Edition1 Launch Event
Lets get to know the A-Class #Edition1 first.
The A-Class #Edition1 is based on the current A-180 CDI, with a few exterior and many interior changes (rather, additions). Exterior changes include:
- New alloys
- Edition1 Decals (Stickers, developed in India and not available on overseas #Edition1 cars)
- Gloss black finish on the Outside Rear View Mirrors (ORVMs)
- A new Panaromic Sunroof
The most important change is the revised Ground Clearance, which is a result of feedback from the customers who bought the A-Class.
On the inside, a number of features are added:
- Electrical seat adjustment for the passenger seat
- Reverse Camera
- An armrest for the rear passengers
- Edition1 badge on the inside (near the sunroof button).
The engine is the same as the standard A-Class : 2.2Litre Diesel engine, which produces 109bhp & 250Nm of torque, mated with the 7G-Tronic Automatic Gearbox.

The B-Class #Edition1
The B-Class still has no competition in the market, because when it was launched back in September 2012, it created a segment of its own – “Compact Sports Tourer”.
The B-Class #Edition1 has similar exterior changes like its smaller sibling, the A-Class #Edition1:
- New 17-inch alloys
- Revised Ground Clearance
- Gloss black finish on the ORVMs (Exterior Mirror Housing)
Additions on the inside are also the same as the A-Class #Edition1:
- Rear passenger seat center armrest (with Two cup-holders)
- Entertainment package (includes the two LCD screens, DVD drive, headphones and remote control)
- Edition1 badge
- Reverse Camera

Both the cars are available in three colors: Cirrus White, Polar Silver and Jupiter Red (which is a NEW color for the B-Class). Only diesel variants of the #Edition1 are available.
The A-Class #Edition1 is priced at Rs 26.17 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), while the B-Class #Edition1 is priced at Rs 28.7 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai).
If all the above features excite you and you really like the A-Class or the B-Class, go buy them NOW! Only 100 A-Class #Edition1 and 100 B-Class #Edition1 will be available. (Remember, I told you they were “Limited” Editions!).
